Darrell just can’t wait to help me unpack my Yuletide food shopping, he doesn’t even give me a chance to get a cup of tea first!
I have to say that my "Secret Santa" M & S shopping bag has proved to be a most useful and fortuitous gift for carrying my festive fayre home on the Banga bus. Yesterday, I thought, by way of a change, I would have a look and see what Waitrose had to offer in the way of Christmassy comestibles, as it is a little more up market than my usual shopping hunting grounds ……..
…….. and I was very impressed, especially by their range of Marmitey items. They had Marmite bagels, now how BRILLIANT is that??!!!! Forget those Hester Blooming-Heck Christmas puddings with the orange in the middle, that you can’t get, we think our exclusive review of a Marmite Bagel and Dairylea triangle combo will have an anticipated high nom quota, and thus result in another shopping frenzy, resulting in shortages and Marmite bagels selling on e-bay for over £1,000+. I also found Marmite flatbreads and Branston pickle flavoured rice cakes, veritable festive gems of a savoury nature!
I also stocked up on squirty cream and meringue nests …
…….I should have known that Darrell would make a bee line for the said squirty cream …..
What is he like? I steadfastly refused to aim the nozzle at his open mouth and squirt cream into it, it is such common and unseemly behaviour, especially now that I am a Waitrose shopper, I have certain standards to uphold and must maintain the air of dignity of a customer of discerning taste.
